“Don’t let anyone, even your parents, break you. Find good people who care about you and surround yourself with just them. If you can’t find them at first, find good music and fall into it and let it hold you until they come.”—Davey Havok (via hatelessly)
why is it that were always told not to get tattoos at a young age because we “will regret it later on” when we are basically told to choose a career path by age 18? i’d rather be 40 years old with a tattoo that meant something to me when i was young than be 40 years old not wanting to get out of bed to go to a job that i hate because i was forced to decide on a career in my teens
i forget sometimes that characters i’m so emotionally invested in are just characters to some people. like they look at them. and just see a character. and that’s it. they do not get upset over their facial expressions. or get a stupid smile on their own face when they see a picture of them. or know completely useless facts about them. to the people they’re just. casually there. they are just a character. but they are so much more than just a character
Sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don’t know why we are sad, so we say we aren’t sad but we really are.
